This body of work began as a research project. The artist has struggled with PTSD triggered by intimacy for their whole adult life. What began as private sensory research and writing became a body of work investigating their relationship with sensuality and nature.

Lane found that there were safe ways to experience romance and intimacy through dreams and nature and friendship. They weekly visited Bartram’s Garden and through sound recordings, sensory research and writing further developed a list of wants and desires. The research is documented in the zine People Holding Hands with Trees.
